Pressestimmen"This book is the most comprehensive global synthesis on the nitrogen cycle in agriculture conducted to date. It especially addresses the critical need to understand and hence improve the management of nitrogen fertilizer to maintain crop production while reducing external consequences of fertilizer use. Importantly, it evaluates ways to enhance crop production in areas of the world where nitrogen fertilizers are very expensive." --Dennis Keeney
